I wrote this about a guy and a girl. She was a stereotypical beauty queen and he really admired her and gets involved with her then she breaks up with him, things go wrong and he ends up taking his life but he got his 15 minutes of fame with her.

It's ok the pain isn't alive

She thinks that he'll still survive

To her he willfall apart and thengo on

Not as two but now as one

Now she's something he can't find

She's just a whisper in his mind

And he will feel it cutting in

No longer a fallen angel now only a sin

He didn't get to hold her hand

Now he never can

And now to feel her sweet embrace

Would just be a slap in the face

This is the part where he bleeds

As her heart slowly leaves

And now its done his wrists are cut

And when she hears its she'll say what

This isn't a story

This isn't a thing

Its simply the end to what she knew she shouldn't begin

And as she hears this she won't cry

Because to her he was just another guy

Another guy who fell apart

Another guy who tried to put back together his broken heart

Another guy who her charms could tame

Another guy who got the blame

Another guy who playedher game

Another guy who got his 15 minutes of fame

This is a great poem, you have captured greatly the sorrow the great majority of men feel when girls leave them. Sometimes to take your own life is the only way to take away the pain as we see in the end of this poem. Love is like this as we see some people just see an ex boyfriend/girlfriend as just another guy/girl when its alot more. Well Done! 5*'s

Damn. One of your best I'd say. It represents a mixture of emotions from both sides. Very well written. Keep the good work up.
